millions of americans watched the final presidential debate, the obama campaign wants to reach millions more. just in to cnn, president obama is rolling out a brand new advertising campaign over the airwaves, internet and in glossy pamphlets. why? cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin joins us from the president's first stop today, del ray beach, florida. tell us about this new effort. >> reporter: hi, carol. fresh off the debate, the president is doing a tour of the battleground states. and he's delivering a message that he is fighting for the middle class and that he has a plan for his second term, answering critics who say he's not giving enough specifics. i guess they figured if you write it down, it looks specific. they have a 19-page glossy new plan for jobs and middle class security that really details a lot of what we've heard from him before on education, manufacturing, energy, getting the u.s. out of afghanistan over time and tax reform. i've looked through it. the specifics in this really have to do with his past accomplishments on health care, on jobs and the ec
to work. >> welcome back to "the journal editorial report." that was president obama this week at a campaign stop in ohio, painting an optimistic picture of an economy on the upswing. last month's unemployment numbers no doubt helped fuel that narrative as does news this week that new home construction reached its highest level in four years. so is america on the road to recovery? let's ask economist art laffer. good to you have here. >> thank you very much, paul. >> we've got housing rebounding, we've got consumer confidence up. we've got the jobs market. it's still a mediocre jobs recovery, but at least there's some. what's going on? are we seeing a really -- finally a good rebound? >> i don't think so at all, paul. i mean honestly i don't think that's the way to describe this economy. we have the worst recovery in u.s. history when you look at the employment numbers there, you see the participation rates dropping like a stone. that's the reason the unemployment rate's not at 12% today. housing starts are off almost a zero base for the last four years, not anywhere near the a
assumed he wouldn't be appearing like he was the incumbent and obama would act as the challenger. as i slept on and talk to republican strategists today, i think they think they're ahead. he was like someone ahead trying to do no harm, and i think he accomplished what he set out to do, which was establish that he had a presidential temperament and stature to be commander in chief, which the early reaction showed. fair-minded observers would say he hit that mark. he also wanted to take away the ability of the president in his closing arguments these next two weeks to cast romney as a warmonger, and i think he did that. i'm told they wanted to not scare women and turn it to the economy whenever they could, and he did all that. so i'm actually from obama's point of view very anxious a day after. it also suggests that kind of prevent/defend strategy shows how confident they were last night. >> matt, does romney seem competent as command ner chief when he continually is hugging the president's positions and saying i agree, i agree, i agree and i was no substantive critique of your foreign p
obama was from monday trite when mitt romney wanted to give no government help. his 2008 op-ed "the federal government should provide guarantees for post bankrrptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not rascals quote. justice sample of the president's deviation from fact. the condescending attitude highlighted in many repeats today. syndicated columnist said mitt romney when large and obama went shockingly small. what obama did is kept interrupting and his responses were small. very small. petty attack. >> the president appeared more like the challenger than the incumbent. >> stephen hays said it seems the president condescension has crossed the line from aggressive to disrespectful. will voters like him lockheed romney? >> he appeared to be constrained and elevated. lou: the poles are still moving in that romney's direction. investors rattled and the future uncertain with the election to weeks away. will there be the october surprise? november surprise? we haven't covered. ron christi, and chris sky9 walter and john silvia. and ed klein will be with us. the
spending for the military. and that's a consequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected presint. that's an important issue distinctiont coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor ct romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a i mber of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debas making a difference is that, had

, counting down to the final debate between president obama and governor romney. there is brand new finger-pointing over what the president claims he knew about libya and when. republicans are saying this new report is based on selectively leaked information timed to take the pressure off president obama. according to the reporting of the the "wall street journal," parent company of this network. the c.i.a. intelligence briefing pointed to a protest as a possible motive for up to ten days after the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador and three others. republicans have criticized the united states ambassador to the united nations and other officials for saying that the attack likely stemmed from a protest. according to the reporting of the "wall street journal", the c.i.a. daily intelligence updates did not rule it out until accept 22 despite officials at office of the director of national intelligence who said by september 15 a protest had nothing to do with the attack. that is the top story. ed henry is live on it. the debate tonight is supposed to be about foreign possibility and the
obama has made in afghanistan was announcing the specific date that he would withdraw. he said this president has done an extraordinary thing he announced the date of our withdrawal. that was wrong. mr. romney today just flat out reversing his previous rejection to there being a withdrawal date from afghanistan, as he very tightly hugged president obama on everything from drones to egypt to syria to a number of other matters tonight on which there was less disagreement than we might have expected before the debate. chris matthews? what's your take? >> let me take my favorite role for a minute, my role of critic. you think about the united states. let's talk about our country instead of the middle east and israel that was focused on far too much. let's focus on the united states. nothing about the drug trade coming through latin-america which is the greatest threat to our culture in many ways. the failure of european finance, which is always hanging over us every day. we get new stock market worries about europe, no discussion whatever of europe, latin america of any way. it was
